聖雅各伯 (宗徒) (慶日)

恭讀聖瑪竇福音 20:20-28

那時,載伯德兒子的母親,同自己的兒子前來,叩拜耶穌,請求他一件事。耶穌對她說:「你要什麼?」她回答說:「你叫我的這兩個兒子,在你王國內,一個坐在你的右邊,一個坐在你的左邊。」耶穌回答說:「你們不知道你們所求的是什麼,你們能飲我將要飲的爵嗎?」他們說:「我們能。」耶穌對他們說:「我的爵你們固然要飲;但坐在右邊或左邊,不是我可以給的,而是我父給誰預備了,就給誰。」那十個門徒聽了,就惱怒他們兩兄弟。
耶穌叫過他們來說:「你們知道:外邦人有首長主宰他們,有大臣管轄他們。在你們中卻不可這樣;誰若願意在你們中成為大的,就當作你們的僕役;誰若願意在你們中為首,就當作你們的奴僕。就如人子來不是受服侍,而是服侍人,並交出自己的生命,為大眾作贖價。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 20:20-28

20 Then the mother of the sons of Zeb’edee came up to him, with her sons, and kneeling before him she asked him for something. 21 And he said to her, “What do you want?” She said to him, “Command that these two sons of mine may sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your kingdom.” 22 But Jesus answered, “You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I am to drink?” They said to him, “We are able.” 23 He said to them, “You will drink my cup, but to sit at my right hand and at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared by my Father.” 24 And when the ten heard it, they were indignant at the two brothers. 25 But Jesus called them to him and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great men exercise authority over them. 26 It shall not be so among you; but whoever would be great among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever would be first among you must be your slave; 28 even as the Son of man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

—The Gospel of the Lord.

瑪20:20-28  (讀經 ── 格後4:7-15  詠126)

載伯德兒子的母親,同自己的兒子前來,叩拜耶穌,請求他一件事。耶穌對她說:「你要什麼?」她回答說:「你叫我的這兩個兒子,在你王國內,一個坐在你的右邊,一個坐在你的左邊。」耶穌回答說:「你們不知道你們所求的是什麼,你們能飲我將要飲的爵嗎?」他們說:「我們能。」耶穌對他們說:「我的爵你們固然要飲;但坐在右邊或左邊,不是我可以給的,而是我父給誰預備了,就給誰。」那十個門徒聽了,就惱怒他們兩兄弟。
耶穌叫過他們來說:「你們知道:外邦人有首長主宰他們,有大臣管轄他們。在你們中卻不可這樣;誰若願意在你們中成為大的,就當作你們的僕役;誰若願意在你們中為首,就當作你們的奴僕。就如人子來不是受服侍,而是服侍人,並交出自己的生命,為大眾作贖價。」

默 想

  • 耶穌問若望雅各伯,你們能飲我將要飲的爵嗎?其實也在問我們。我們能飲嗎?耶穌說,你們固然要飲。所以我們其實無選擇,非飲不可!
  • 我們每主日都領聖體聖血,其實就是飲主的杯,但這只是開始,我們飲了主的杯後,是要分給世人的,就像主一樣,把自己分給世人,這就是祂的杯,也是祂要我們飲的杯。
  • 可惜的是,我們通常只做了上半部,然後便回家去或飲茶去,忘記了分給世人。
  • 結果是,我們其實沒有飲到主的杯爵。
